Limit what you bring to work: people often keep gym clothes, multiple pairs of shoes and unnecessary items at their desks or in lockers. The less you bring to work, the fewer opportunities bed bugs have to hitch a ride into your office. This approach to preventing bed bugs helps protect the work environment as well. When employees bring less stuff to the office, there’s less of a chance bed bugs can be brought into the workplace by an employee that has a bed bug infestation at home.

Any items you wish to bring to work can be safely stored in a sealed plastic bag – Ziploc makes large storage bags that measure approx 3ftx2ft – ( available at http://www.bellenvironmentalstore.com/ ) or a clear storage bin that has a sealable lid. Sealed plastic bags are perfect for use in employee lockers.
